Plush, velveteen, and lightly striped for texture, chenille is the perfect fabric for babies. Now you can make your own chenille baby blanket with this Chenille Teething Baby Blanket Tutorial! Make a blanket for your friends' baby shower, or make one for your own little miracle. This blanket isn't just for snuggling, either. It's also looped around a teething ring, so while your baby is swathed in comfort, he/she can also soothe the pain of incoming teeth. Colorful and pragmatic, this DIY teething ring and baby blanket pattern is something every parent should have in their arsenal of baby gear.

Materials List

  • Fabric
  • Chalk
  • Sewing machine and thread
  • 2-1/2'' Wooden ring
  • Chenille maker
  • Folding ruler (6'' x 24'')
  • Classic stick rotary cutter (45mm)

Instructions

  1. Cut 4-7 pieces of 12” x 12” fabric and one piece of 14” x 14” fabric. The 14” x 14” fabric will be your base layer of fabric. Place all pieces of 12” x 12” fabric pieces on top of each other, with the base layer at the bottom.

  2. Use a ruler and chalk to mark a diagonal line from one corner to the opposite corner. Sew along the marked line, then sew evenly spaced parallel lines over the entire surface of the fabric. The lines should be between 3/8” to 1/2” apart.

  3. Insert the chenille maker into the center channel, just above the larger base layer and facing towards you. Hold the material in place and firmly pull the chenille maker towards you, cutting through the layers of fabric. Cut through each channel in the same way.

  4. After cutting through all the stitched channels, put the fabric in the washer and dryer. For better, fluffier chenille results, launder with other items; the friction helps to create a plush effect.

  5. To finish the sensory teething toy, pin a piece of fabric to the right sides of the chenille. Sew three sides of the fabric around the perimeter of the square.

  6. Trim the seam allowance and clip the corners. Turn the chenille sensory blanket to the right through the hole you left on the one side. Sew the hole closed.

  7. Pass one corner of the blanket through a wooden ring and sew it down so that the ring is attached at the corner. You may need to hand stitch this to ensure it is firmly attached.
